Since 1991, restaurants in major cities across the country have been participating in Dining Out for Life, an annual fund-raiser for HIV/AIDS service organizations.
On Thursday, April 29th, 32 local restaurants will offer a portion of their breakfast, lunch, or dinner sales to Friends for Life, the Mid-South's most comprehensive HIV/AIDS service organization.
Topping the list of participants is Bhan Thai, the only restaurant in the city offering 100 percent of lunch sales to Friends for Life.
The Inn at Hunt Phelan will donate 50 percent of dinner sales to the event, and Cafe Society is offering 35 percent of lunch and dinner service proceeds to fight HIV/AIDS.
Other particpating restaurants include Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen, Ciao Bella Italian Grill, Amerigo, Barksdale Cafe, Bari Ristorante, The Beauty Shop, Felicia Suzanne's, Interim, Mollie Fontaine Lounge, McEwen's on Monroe, Napa Cafe, Molly's La Casita, Noodle Doodle Do, R.P.
